I mentioned Stephanie starting a Link up party called Roses of Inspiration over at her blog The Enchanting Rose . If you have time stop over and join in or check out some of the links from others who are joining in.
I would say 99% of my cards are made with someone in mind and I usually share who they are going to. Today's card is going to my Secret Sister at Church. I had never heard of this before at other churches I have attended over the years of our travels in the military but my church now has this program where you pick a name out of a bowl of another lady in the church and she has filled out a sheet with information about her life, family with an area to share prayer request that are urgent right now in her life and then things you can pray over the year for her. We also share cards of encouragement and little gifts throughout the year. I have such a hard time buying cards for my secret sisters throughout the year since I make my own but they would know it was me for sure if I were to give them one of mine, so since this Thursday is our reveal for the year 2014, I am finally able to make her a card and this is what I came up with and I think it is a perfect way to start out the Roses of Inspiration link up too :)
Anna Griffin -- Background die
Elizabeth Craft Designs -- Rose dies
DCWV -- Card base
Ribbon -- RAK
Craftaroo -- Rhinestones
I added a bit of chalk to give the roses a bit of color, her favorite colors are pink and blue and since you don't see many blue roses I went with all pink. After putting the rose together I added dimension with foam tape.
If you want to see what the others have done for the party check out Stephanie's blog HERE .
Thanks so much for taking the time out to stop by, I would love to hear what you think,
